    My Belgian Bantams have wounds around their eyes and wattles and I'm rather sure it is from the 2 chicks (who are twice the size and I've no clue to their breed) or magpies. I'm posting pictures (trying to this is the third time I've attempted to get pictures, darn site) just in case it is something else.

    Definitely looks like battle wounds.

    Fowl Pox can also produce black scabs, but I really don't think that's what this is.
